Muslim Brotherhood Penetration of the U.S. Government

Former CIA operations officer, Clare Lopez, traces the origins and activities of the Muslim Brotherhood leading to their success in penetrating the U.S. government:
... it should be noted that massive financial support from Saudi Arabia and other Gulf sheikhdoms has always played a central and deeply important role in the ability of the Brotherhood to fund its global expansion,

... The first task was to maneuver Muslim Brothers into positions of trust with key U.S. government ...

... The U.S. executive branch, from the president to the NSC and key Cabinet Departments, had been effectively neutered at the very start of the Global War on Terror. This is how President Bush could stand on 17 September 2001 inside the Islamic Center of Washington, D.C., flanked by Nihad Awad, Executive Director of CAIR (the U.S. branch of HAMAS), and in all sincerity, declare that "Islam is peace."

The George W. Bush administration was targeted with a multifaceted, sophisticated information operation designed to deceive national security officials about the true nature of the Islamic jihadist enemy that attacked the homeland on 9/11. Surrounded by Muslim Brotherhood voices which told him true Islam had been "hijacked" by a "tiny minority of extremists," ... President Bush ... was successfully deterred from investigating the belief system that inspired those hijackers by a blanket of Muslim Brotherhood taqiyya that successfully smothered inquiry about the very Islamic doctrine that al-Qa'eda and the hijackers themselves declared to be their motivation. Although few realize it to this day, the crippling of the Bush administration's GWOT response marked a crucial turning point in the U.S. ability to defend itself against Islamic jihad. ...

... As bad as these developments were, things became immeasurably worse for American national security under the administration of Barack Obama. Whereas President Bush and most of his administration insiders remained largely unaware that they had been manipulated by the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama and his close advisors proactively chose to reach out to the Brotherhood, its affiliates, and supporters for advice, training, and even administration appointments. ...
That's just a small sample from Ms. Lopez's paper. A fascinating read.

Is this like the soviets entrenched themselves in the us state departmenet in the 1930's -- read the Mitrokhin archives. They embedded themselves permanently -- I suspect Clinton's "reset" was based on this intrusion.

Don’t forget about little Canada. We my not have a direct link to the Muslim brotherhood because Prime Minister Harper would never put up with it, but we sure as heck got a lot of Muslims who hate us. And these are Muslims who are Canadian citizens, many of whom were born here. David Harris, formerly of CSIS and Scott Newark of the Macdonald-Laurier Institute, have both said that Canada is a heaven for terrorists and this is being achieved by terrorists using our own laws against us. Laws such as the refugee act, human rights commissions and the Charter of Rights and the Constitution. Although we haven’t had a terrorists attack yet; “yet” is the key word that only means a matter of time. Just take a look at how many terrorists attacks around the world and even in the U.S. that have had Canadian connections?

Gerry, also the Venona Project. No doubt the Russians are still at it. Even with the Russian stance on Syria, Obama probably still think the Russians are no threat.

Re - "Canada is a haven for [Muslim] terrorists"
We also have Justin Trudeau, a potential future Prime Minister, giving a keynote address at the Muslim Brotherhood sponsored "Reviving the Islamic Spirit" conference. Do we have to ask whether one of Trudeau's close advisors, Omar Alghabra (former president of the Canadian Arab Federation), had anything to do with this?
